(London, United Kingdom--July 7, 2014) FilmLight today announced that it has added two highly experienced figures from the world of post-production to its team. Daniele Siragusano and Ram Krishna Tripathi Samaveda will provide workflow information, consultancy and training to help customers of the Baselight grading environment implement the infrastructure best suited to their specific needs and requirements.

“We’re deploying more experts in the field as we think it’s important to communicate with our customers, on a one-to-one basis, how to build an efficient colour pipeline with our technology,” explained Wolfgang Lempp, FilmLight Co-founder. “When the industry continues to change so rapidly, our unique level of support—and the customer feedback it provides—only becomes more important.”
First to join the team is Daniele Siragusano, who spent almost five years at CinePostproduction in Munich, rising to head of technology before moving to dve Digital Video & Effects GmbH as a workflow consultant. Daniele will utilise his experience and workflow expertise at FilmLight, helping existing and potential customers achieve the best productivity and creativity in their own unique setups. Baselight is widely regarded as the most interoperable professional grading system available, and he will assist companies in accommodating FilmLight technology at every stage of production and post-production.
Ram joins FilmLight as an experienced and award winning colourist and editor, currently working towards a doctorate in colour perception and management. His role at FilmLight will be Product Specialist/Colourist with a particular focus on the South Asia market. He will provide FilmLight’s clients with invaluable training support and implement workflows to take advantage of the unique collaborative potential of FilmLight’s colour grading and management technologies. When not considering colour, Ram is also a successful composer known as Samaveda with half a dozen albums, reflecting the music of his native Nepal.
“It is great to welcome Daniele and Ram to the team,” added Steve Chapman, Co-Founder of FilmLight. “They have real, current, in-depth experience of the creative, commercial and technical challenges facing post houses, so they can talk to our customers and prospective customers on their own terms, helping them to get the best out of the most capable technology on the market.”
